Field-Based Professional Development of Teachers Engaged in Distance Education: Experiences from the Arctic
Veletsianos, George; Doering, Aaron; Henrickson, Jeni
Distance Education, v33 n1 p45-59 2012
We examine the experiences of five teachers who traveled with a team of educators, scientists, and explorers on circumpolar Arctic expeditions to deliver adventure learning (AL) programs to K-12 students at a distance. Results highlight the personal and professional impacts this opportunity had on teachers, including their empowering, fulfilling, and mentally exhausting experiences while assisting in delivering distance education to students worldwide. The article concludes with a discussion of issues to consider in the development of similar programs.
